The RN presents 569 candidates for the legislative elections, including Marine Le Pen and her sister Marie-Caroline The National Rally announced on Wednesday that it had invested 569 candidates in the legislative elections of June 12 and 19, including several personalities of the movement, but not its interim president , Jordan Bardella. Marine Le Pen, presidential finalist and MP for Pas-de-Calais, is standing in the 11th constituency of the department. His older sister Marie-Caroline Le Pen, who had returned to politics in the 2021 regional elections in Ile-de-France, where she was elected regional councilor, is running in the 6th constituency of Hauts-de-Seine. She will notably have as an adversary the ex-LR Constance Le Grip, who joined the presidential coalition. Marine Le Pen’s press officer, Caroline Parmentier, regional councilor in Ile-de-France, presents herself in the 9th district of Pas-de-Calais in Béthune. The deputies Bruno Bilde (12th from Pas-de-Calais) and Sébastien Chenu (19th from the North), two close to Marine Le Pen, are candidates for their own succession. As well as Nicolas Meizonnet (2nd from Gard), who took over from Gilbert Collard when the latter was elected, in 2019, MEP. Mr. Collard has since joined Eric Zemmour. But the RN did not invest the former identity manager Philippe Vardon, because of his “doubts” about the candidacy of Marine Le Pen, in the 3rd district of the Alpes-Maritimes, where he supports Benoît Kandel, former deputy mayor by Nice Christian Estrosi. Mr. Bardella mentioned a dozen parachute drops, including those, in Moselle, of RN spokesman Laurent Jacobelli and RN communications director Alexandre Loubet. The RN did not present a candidate against Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, former ally of Marine Le Pen in 2017, in Essonne, nor against Emmanuelle Ménard, outgoing deputy RN, in Hérault. On the other hand, the youth manager at Eric Zemmour, Stanislas Rigault, approached by Mr. Bardella, will have an RN candidate facing him, Bénédicte Auzanot. The RN also presents a candidate, Roger Chudeau, ex-LR pro-Fillon, in the constituency of Guillaume Peltier, vice-president of Reconquest! (2nd in Loir-et-Cher). He also invested a candidate, Philippe Lottiaux, in the 4th district of the Var (Saint-Tropez), watched closely by Eric Zemmour, who hesitates to start.
